Evolving to the Next Generation of Multifunctional Electronic Warfare Part II

Thursday, August 22, 2019 14:00 -15:00 EDT



With today’s increasingly sophisticated threats in the global defense battlefield and the proliferation of Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2/AD), technology must rise to meet the challenge of complex missions – particularly for those operating across the electromagnetic spectrum.These missions call for ‘smart’ systems that address multiple threats and perform simultaneous functions, meaning that they need to be adaptive, multifunctional and operate on any platform (whether in the air, at sea, on the ground or unmanned) – all under reduced size, weight and power. New systems need to have modern software architectures that can keep pace with commercial software development cycles and loosely coupled to hardware. This will enable future hardware and software systems to run in diverse environments. Dated systems built with one specific purpose and function (e.g., one individual system for electronic attack; a different system for electronic support measures, etc.) require ongoing upgrades and multiple parts, which can limit mission effectiveness and slow down critical mission turnaround time.

(On-Demand Virtual Series Webinars are available only to dues-paying AOC Members)



Matthew Orr is the founder of Ocupoint Inc. which is a start-up company that develops advanced small form factor hardware for wide range of commercial applications such as 5G wireless as well as defense applications such as cognitive electronic warfare and electronic support measures systems. Prior starting Ocupoint, Mr. Orr was a principle systems engineer in the Advanced Systems Technologies group within the Harris Electronic Systems division and was responsible for several early research programs consisting of small form factor multifunctional EW system modules. Mr. Orr has been working in research and development programs in the areas of electronic warfare (EW), global navigation satellite systems and military tactical communications systems for 21 years.  Mr. Orr holds patents in the areas of radar detection and signal processing and his background includes software defined radio architectures, GPS Block IIR/III navigational payload design and the development of signal interception and processing techniques. His current research interests include advanced electronic attack (EA) and electronic countermeasures (ECM) technique development, small form factor EW and multifunction EW systems.
